Construction (Environmental) Management Plans C(E)MPs



What Are Construction (Environmental) Management Plans C(E)MPs?

Construction (Environmental) Management Plans, C(E)MPs, are documents that are produced as part of planning applications, either as an accompaniment or to discharge a specific condition on a Decision Notice. In either case they are important documents in determining strategies that will ensure a construction project has as little impact on its surroundings as possible.

They often accompany Construction Logistics Plans (CLPs) and other planning documents to provide a detailed, wide-reaching construction management and planning strategy.

C(E)MPs can be tailored to include a variety of sections, often defined in the relevant planning condition.

As a standard, Construction Management Plans will include the following sections:

      > Site Information – Including development proposal, location, and layout

      > CMP Strategy – Implementation, key persons, responsibilities, and strategies

      > Construction Planning – Programme of works, vehicle planning and appropriate       licencing

      > Access – Delivery routes, loading/unloading procedures, public safety considerations

      > Sustainability – Carbon reduction, environmental impacts & mitigations

      > Vulnerable Receptors – Details of local businesses, schools and residences that may be affected by works

In addition, other sections that can be included on a project specific basis include:

      > Dust mitigation

      > Noise & Vibration

      > Water Management

      > Ecology

Why Are C(E)MPs Needed?

C(E)MPs/ CLPs/ CMPs etc… provide the Planners with a means of controlling Construction Site Practices to ensure Decision Notice conditions are actually implemented. They are important as they allow the Local Authority to assess the impact of a development, and ensure that local and national sustainability, safety, and economic targets are being met. C(E)MPs are treated as ‘live’ documents and should be updated regularly as policies are added or amended. They should also form part of site inductions for all contractors. C(E)MPs are supported by national and local legislation.
